    The Olympic committee isn’t that naive. They’re distributing literally hundreds of thousands of condoms and related safe sex accessories.

    It’s up to the host country how to handle the horniness of the Olympic village, not the committee. Some countries in the past have taken measures to discourage it.

    FWIW, the Olympic village has been an STD hotbed in the past. But distributing protection is way more likely to help with that than trying to keep the athletes off of each other.

      Fair enough, I conflated the Olympic committee with the Olympic organizers. :)

      In any case, someone is realistic about these things because they’re taking some steps to try to keep things clean while they get dirty.
